    We would like to visit the Palace and the Zoo with 2 kids (12 and 7). Is this possible in one day?

      Oh yes. Very doable.

    I really love the gardens. Every time I visit the place I bring some walnuts. There are a lot of squirrels in the park and they are so friendly that they eat from your hand.

      That sounds like fun. Yeah, the grounds there were just gorgeous!

    Hi Talon, thanks for sharing your story and good advice! I always take my kids to Schonbrunn when we visit my hometown Vienna. Their favourite is the zoo, followed by quadrille dancing at the Kindermuseum. Few people know that Schonbrunn has a public swimming pool on the grounds, hidden away from the main site. We’ll go there next summer.

      If we lived there, we’d definitely visit those grounds a lot.

    I’ve been to the gardens at Schönbrunn several times, but have never paid to enter the palace itself. I may have to reconsider when I’m next in Vienna!

      Personally, I wouldn’t.

    We had much the same experience as you. We loved the grounds and the Christmas market there (way less packed which was a nice change), but thought the Palace itself was rather plain (I don’t even think we bothered writing about it). Safe travels!

      Definitely plain, which is apparently how he liked it. What’s the point of having a huge palace if you’re going to make it absolutely boring inside? LOL

    I also wasn’t thrilled with the interior. I absolutely loved the gardens as well as the strudel show in the basement of the cafe.

      The interior was rather sad for a palace. Tigger wasn’t keen on the strudel show, so we didn’t go to see that.

    I agree. It wasn’t worth the tour price especially after visiting Versailles. Compare the two and Versailles is so much more. I really enjoyed the Schönbrunn gardens though and that is worth a visit especially when all the flowers are in bloom.

      Yes, the grounds are really great. It’s a beautiful place to just wander, sit and relax, etc.
